STEAMED SEA PERCH WITH RED DATES, WOLFBERRIES AND GINGER
200g sea perch fillet
4 red dates
1 thumb-sized piece ginger
1 tsp wolfberries
Canola oil, for deep-frying
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp light soya sauce
Coriander leaves, for garnishing
1 Place fillet on a steaming tray.
2 Remove seeds from red dates. Cut dates into rings, and ginger into thin strips.
3 Place red dates, wolfberries, and 1/3 of the ginger on top of fillet.
4 Steam for 15 minutes or until cooked.
5 In another pan or wok, heat enough oil to deep-fry the remaining ginger until fragrant and crispy. Place on kitchen paper to drain off excess oil.

9 Garnish with coriander. Serve hot.
